Overnight Peach Oats

July 31, 2017

I am a peach lover, so naturally this time of year in Ontario is very exciting for me. This past weekend I picked up my first basket of Niagara peaches and my mind is already swirling with recipe testing ideas. 

I actually dislike really ripe fruit, except for when it comes to peaches....I love a juicy ripe peach. Over the weekend I made two different batches of overnight oats, one kind with yogurt that is stored in the fridge and one in the slow cooker. They are both delicious, but I personally love the slow cooked version. These breakfast options are a great source of fibre, which will help keep you satisfied all morning long. The best part about both these recipes is they taste like a peach pie and who can pass up dessert for breakfast? 



Give these recipes a try while Ontario peaches are in season! 


Slow Cooked Overnight Oats:


Serves 4-6



  • 1 1/2 cups steel cut oats

  • 1 3/4 cups almond milk (or any milk)

  • 1 1/2 cups diced peaches (or 3 small-medium peaches). You can also use apples. 

  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 tbsp. honey or maple syrup

  • 1 3/4 cups water

  • 2 heaping tbsp. ground flaxseed 

  • 1 tbsp. butter or vegetable oil



Grease slow cooker well with some butter or vegetable oil.

Place all ingredients in slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours overnight on low heat.

Enjoy the next morning, topped with additional fruit, shredded coconut or slivered almonds. 

*Can keep well for 3 days in the fridge


Mason Jar Easy Overnight Oats:


Serves 2



  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or any milk)

  • 1/3 cup Skyr plain yogurt

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 3/4 cup diced peaches

  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 tsp. honey or maple syrup (optional)

  • 1 tsp. ground flaxseed 



Mix together in a large bowl and divide into 2 small-medium mason jars. Keep in fridge overnight and enjoy in the morning! Option to top with shredded coconut, fresh peach slices and nuts.


I hope you all enjoy this summer's peach season as much as I plan to! 


Cheers to happy and healthy local eating.
